The heat and humidity is high here too. I'm in central Ohio. The heat indexes are in the 100s. I luckily have central A/C. I have to take my dog out periodically. It's steamy out. Today at 2:30 I have to have an MRI on my neck. They're looking for bulging disc. I'm not looking forward to it. Stay cool everyone. Drink plenty of water.

GA had a terrible heat wave like that in May-June so I totally understand.
Last year when our heat pump went out and had to be replaced, I thought I'd suffocate the 12 hours it took them to do all the upgrading (1970 house) to be in code before we had air...and it was only in the low 90s with low 90s heat index. Thankfully we've only had a few days of 98-100 degrees and heat index over 105. The worst for me is the humidity because with asthma it makes it hard for me to breathe. I feel so bad for anyone without AC in this great wave. The current weather does have my joints hurting more.

Thanks for everyone’s comments. Nice to know there are others who understand how it feels. AnimalLover2 my brother lives in Northern Ohio and I’ve heard how hot it is there. Keep cool. Good luck on the outcome of your MRI on your neck. Shore good luck on your upcoming procedure Stay cool and calm. FlappysLady, hope your recovery is on tract to your being able to walk alone with your cane. Everyone hang in there just 2 more days for us. Tomorrow’s suppose to be the worst. Better than a snowy fridged day as far as I’m concerned. Love and hoping all have as pain free a day as possible.😘🤗🍦😎
